The  latest volume in this acclaimed series furthers the mission to investigate and elucidate the nature of Cornish identity, as well as to discuss its implications for society and governance in contemporary Cornwall.
This milestone twentieth volume features ‘Essays in Honour of Bernard Deacon.’ One of the principle architects of Cornish studies today, Bernard Deacon has made an outstanding contribution to scholarship in this field and his achievements stand as second to none in helping us to understand the experience of Cornwall and the Cornish in the modern world.
 “Cornish Studies is a real gem among the serial publications dedicated to regional studies, and this volume confirms once again its status as a significant contribution to the field.” —Ullrich Kockel, University of Ulster

Philip Payton is professor of Cornish and Australian studies at the University of Exeter and director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University’s Cornwall campus.
